When asked about some of Hollywood's hottest actresses, many (if not most) can name a handful of the not only beautiful, but talented ladies. However, there is always the list of the wonderful women that are about to be the next A-List celebrity. Not long ago names like Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, Mila Kunis or Marion Cotillard were not on our radar. You wouldn't see them walking the red carpet, their fan clubs didn't exist and you certainly wouldn't see their face on every tabloid. Fast forward to today, and we just can't get enough of them.
By the end of 2015 and into 2016, there will be a whole new batch of actresses that fans and paparazzi will be clamoring to know every last detail on. Sure, everyone has their own tastes and who is beautiful to one person, the next may not agree, but no matter who you are, it would be hard to argue that these ladies aren't hot! These up and coming actresses are taking over the silver screen from Wonder Women, to Star Wars, to Suicide Squad. They will star alongside (and likely steal the spotlight) from Hollywood's leading men. So watch out Will Smith, Mark Wahlberg and company because these ten hot actresses are taking over!
10 Nicola Peltz
After playing Katara in The Last Airbender, this American Actress has been on the fast track to stardom. Nicola Peltz was born January 9, 1995, in Westchester County, New York to Claudia and Nelson Peltz- a billionaire businessman with companies such as Snapple. Her frequent role as Bradley Martin on the hit TV show Bates Motel, is just one of her many projects, but you probably recognize this beauty from Transformers: Age of Extinction, playing Tessa Yeager. Taking over the lead female role from Megan Fox and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has concreted her up and coming future.
9 Nathalie Emmanuel
You are sure to recognize this lady from HBO's Game of Thrones, where she plays Missandei (first hand to The Mother of Dragons), but I'm betting you didn't know her name. Well, Nathalie Emmanuel is a name you are going to want to keep on your radar! She also just starred as Ramsey in the crazy popular Furious Seven, and will be in Maze Runner: The Scorch Trails coming out later this year. This British beauty has been at it for a while, as she started out in 2007 on the television show Hollyoaks. It seems her dedication to acting is coming together.
8 Alicia Vikander
Hard working doesn't even begin to explain Alicia Vikander with 6 movies coming out in 2015, she will be a household name before you even have time to blink. Born in Sweden, her first major Hollywood film was Anna Karenina, followed by a role on the television show The Fifth Estate. Fast-forward to her hectic, but exciting 2015, she will have the chance to star alongside Oscar winning Eddie Redmayne in The Danish Girl, Lily James and Jamie Dornan in Adam Jones, and was in the just released futuristic Ex Machina. So get a good look at this stunner because you are going to be seeing a whole lot more of her.
7 Britt Robertson
At just 25 years old, Britt Robertson has accomplished a lot! She has credits all the way back to 2000, with past work including Power Rangers and CSI; she has been making a name for herself for a long time. More recently she starred as Angie McAlister in Under the Dome and alongside Jennifer Aniston in Cake. However, three movies coming out in 2015 are what have critics all in a buzz. She plays Scott Eastwood's love interest in The Longest Ride, she joins George Clooney in Tomorrowland and Eddie Murphy in Cook. There is no shortage of stars in her future.
6 Zoe Kravitz
Easily the most famous last name on this list, Zoe Kravitz is the daughter of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet. Despite her famous family, she needs no help in creating a name for herself. Just some of her work has included X-Men: First Class and the Divergent series. In 2015, Zoe has 5 films coming out, for example- Insurgent and the celebrity-packed Mad Max: Fury Road alongside Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult. Acting isn't her only talent though, she was the lead singer and co-writer of her band, "Elevator Fight". Like father, like daughter; Zoe is a double threat.
5 Gugu Mbatha-Raw
Gugu, short for Gugulethu which is Zulu for "Our Pride", a fitting name because with her body of work she is sure to bring "pride" to her family. She rose to fame after winning multiple awards for Belle including Best Actress at the British Independent Film Awards. Earlier this year she starred beside Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis in Jupiter Ascending. In 2017, she will be making an appearance as Plumette in Disney's live action Beauty and the Beast, but if you can't wait that long, she has many other films being released later this year. The Whole Truth (with Keanu Reeves and Renee Zellweger) and Concussion (with Will Smith and Alec Baldwin) should help to tide you over.
4 Lea Seydoux
Say hello to the next Bond girl! If the past success of being a Bond girl is any indication (think Halle Berry), Lea is certainly in good hands. Cue slow motion beach scene! Also the face of Prada Candy, Lea Seydoux is one of the hottest current French exports. Past work has included Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol and The Grand Budapest Hotel. In 2014, she graced the cover of Vanity Fair's 20th Annual Hollywood Issue- which is always a great indication of up and comers. She is a dream actress having said: "I make films for directors. Before anything else, I choose films because of the talent of the directors. The story and the other actors are of course very important, but for me, it's all about the director."
3 Gal Gadot
Another Fast & Furious alumni, Gal Gadot has starred in 4 of the hit films. Yet those won't be her claim to fame. The Israeli actress and model has been cast as Wonder Woman, a role that will keep her busy for years to come. In 2016, we will get the first glimpse of her character in Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, alongside Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill. She will reprise her role for Wonder Woman in 2017, The Justice League Part One in 2017, and Justice League Part Two in 2019. This gorgeous lady isn't going anywhere anytime soon and no one is complaining about that!
2 Daisy Ridley
If you have watched the newest Star Wars trailer (who hasn't?) you have seen this stunner. With relatively small and unknown past work, Daisy Ridley is about to become an overnight success. Facts about Star Wars: Episode VII- The Force Awakens have been kept very hushed, but we do know she will be playing a character by the name of Rey. Maybe another gold bikini Princess Leia moment is in the works? Either way, we can be sure that whatever J.J. Abrams has under wraps is sure to make Daisy a star.
1 Margot Robbie
Margot Robbie may be a name you already know or at least a recognizable face. Her claim to fame so far- Leonardo DiCaprio's wife in The Wolf of Wall Street and her character, Jess, in Focus with Will Smith. Yet, 2016 will be her year with 3 major films to be released. The 3 very different films will see Margot as Jane Porter in Tarzan (with Christoph Waltz and Alexander Skarsgård), Tanya in Fun House (with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad (with Will Smith, Jared Leto and it seems every other actor) which is currently filming in Toronto, Canada. It would be an easy bet that in the next few years, this talented and beautiful actress will be referred to as an "Oscar Winner".
